Though Davidson was not a Pre-Raphaelite, the elaborately stippled technique is indebted to the influence of Pre-Raphaelite landscape painting. In its use of bodycolour to achieve a rich and solid effect, this is a classic example of the way Victorian watercolours could rival oil paintings. It was exhibited in 1868 at the Old Watercolour Society.
